    That’s a terrific result, Jane – looks like he’s actually waiting for the shot. The light texture across his foreleg is wonderful, as it is across the edge of the leaf. Great result.

  • He was very still and kept eye contact the entire time. I believe that I made a friend. Ha! Anyway, thanks so much. I appreciate your kind words.
